AquaQuest, the ideal UV Vis spectrophotometer for your water quality test program
AquaQuest spectrophotometer, designed for water quality test methods
- So easy to use
- Exceptional optical performance
- Use any brand test kits
- Preprogrammed for 150 water test methods
- Long life, outstanding durability
Dedicated to Water Analysis
The Cecil AquaQuest water quality test spectrophotometer has been specially designed to cover the complete requirements of water analysis spectrophotometers. Both visible range and UV/visible range instruments are offered, each with or without an integral printer for convenient presentation of results, without the extra space required by an external printer.
Fast and Easy to Operate
Choosing a water quality test method complete with the appropriate sample pathlength could not be simpler. It takes only about 15 seconds to select the method and get the instrument set up and ready for measurement. Quick change sample holders each accommodating more than one sample pathlength add to convenience and speed up operation.
Cecil spectrophotometers are well known for their durability. The lamp is the most expensive consumable part on a spectrophotometer. A Cecil lamp will last for over 3 years, in contrast to a typical spectrophotometer whose lamps need changing multiple times per year. Over the life of the Cecil instrument this can amount to significant cost savings. Cecil takes pride in the lowest instrument maintenance costs in the industry.
Use with Any Brand Test Kit
AquaQuest can be used with any manufacturer’s water quality test kits. Save money by avoiding a spectrophotometer that locks you into expensive consumable contracts.
Exceptional Optical Performance and Stability
Superb performance is the result of the excellent specifications of the AquaQuest. Exceptionally high stability, low stray light, low noise and high wavelength-setting precision ensure that reliable and accurate measurements may be made to 3 Absorbance units.
Whatever special needs your laboratory may have, the AquaQuest spectrophotometer offers the flexibility, power and performance required. Wavelength scanning, cell programming, batch sampling, wavelength programming, time course plotting and reaction kinetics are all available.
All instruments are completely programmed for approximately 150 water quality test methods based on the proven range of Merck 'Spectroquant' test kits. Users may also develop their own methods and calibrations to be stored in security-protected memory for instant recall and use at any time.
Cecil will set up the analyzer so that at start-up it will go immediately to the wavelength of interest. There is no charge for this customization, a real convenience to those who use only one or two methods.
Cecil offers a complete range of sampling accessories. All instruments are fitted as standard with a special dual sample holder designed to accommodate both 10mm rectangular cuvettes and 16mm reaction tubes as supplied with many Merck test kits; no need to change holder when switching between the two. Sample holders take only seconds to change without the use of any tool. More advance sampling options include the sipette system, automatic cell changers, and batch sampling. For a more extensive description of sampling options request a brochure.
Ultrasonic Nanoparticle Dispersion
Sonication in laboratory ultrasonic cleaners is a widely accepted process for the dispersion or separation of nanoparticles in liquids – that is breaking up nanomaterial agglomerates. It is an effective alternative to other dispersion methods such as rotor-stator homogenizers, piston homogenizers and wet milling. A number of factors should be considered when selecting ultrasonic equipment
Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaners for Aircraft Engine Overhaul
The efficiency and thoroughness of aircraft engine overhaul procedures involving inspection and cleaning engine components is increased when parts are subjected to cavitation action in industrial ultrasonic cleaners. Efficiency is improved because ultrasonic cleaning is much faster than manually cleaning components in wash tanks and spray tanks using solvent-based cleaners. Cleaning thoroughness is achieved because
Analytical Balance Best Practices
It doesn’t take much to throw an analytical balance off. The opportunities for errors to occur increase dramatically as the resolution or readout of analytical balances increases. That’s why labs and other users of an analytical balance should establish and post a “best practices” list and remind researchers to employ them at all times. Once
Lab Freezer Alarm Crucial to Biological Sample Protection
An October news item reported that a lab freezer door left open at a medical research institute resulted in compromising some 26,000 specimens being used in the study of Parkinson’s disease. The article reported that the required storage temperature for the specimens is at a temperature below -80⁰C (-112⁰F). “This incident along with others mentioned
Ultrasonic Cleaning Solution Temperature Control
The temperature at which an ultrasonic cleaning solution is at maximum effectiveness is usually included in the detail sheets or specified by standard operating procedures provided by technical and trade associations. As examples the product information sheet for the widely used alkaline elma tec clean A4 suggests temperatures of 50 to 80⁰C whereas MedClean C7
